Single Vineyard Box 2017
Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard 2017 – Napa pioneer Dr. George Belden Crane originally planted Dr. Crane vineyard in 1858. It was acquired by Beckstoffer in 1997 and replanted in 1998. The vineyard’s location on the west side of St. Helena gives the vineyard its gravelly loam soils.
Cabernet Sauvignon Sunshine Valley Vineyard 2017 – A tiny sliver of Oak Knoll shielded from the setting western sun, this is our coolest site for Cabernet Sauvignon. Long, slow ripening grapes, thick, sturdy vines and the sprinkling in of Cabernet Franc and “stunning” (our winemaker’s words) Malbec plantings make for quite a combination.
Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard 2017 – The first vineyard planted in what is now the St. Helena appellation has been a Beckstoffer secret weapon since 1983. Warm and dry, this site yields tiny berries of immense concentration which produce a powerhouse for long-term aging.
Cabernet Sauvignon Thomas Vineyard 2017 – Named after engineer Don Thomas, Thomas Vineyard is on a western hillside in Rutherford and visible from Alpha Omega’s terrace. This Alpha Omega-owned property is set up as a vineyard laboratory with the latest technology to monitor the weather and water. An early-ripening site, Thomas boasts rocky soil with a higher sand content than on the valley floor. The result is a powerful wine with an elegant balance of structure and density.
Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard 2017 – Scouring this massive property for the right blocks is never easy, but we found them! Above the fog line and perfectly oriented, Stagecoach has become a benchmark for top producers of Napa Cabernet.
Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2017 – One of California’s most famous and historically important vineyards, To Kalon’s reputation is well-deserved. Farmed to our standards, the lush, decadent fruit that has made Oakville the heart of Napa Valley opulence is there in every sip.
